iPhone 12 Pro Max terrible WiFi performance

I’ve been a die hard Samsung slag since the S2 days and even 2 note 7s and a broken a fold 2 didn’t put me off.. well till now!

 

recently got an iPhone 12 Pro Max. And the WiFi performance is terrible. To the extent on a 950Mbps connection it struggles to load basic Reddit thumb nails. The issues is consistent across all WiFi connections. And is inconsistent in if it works or not. Sometimes it’s perfect. Other times it’s terrible. 
Others have reported similar issues and say such things as turning WiFi network private mode off helps, as dues turning WiFi off and on quickly. 
but it’s becoming a real pain in the butt. 
anyone come up with any other solutions? 
I know it’s not hardware related as when it does work fine it’s perfect and it’s always ok on network data. 
seems to be since iOS 14.5 installed.

This might be hardware related. Just because it works fine sometimes doesn't mean it is functional. The wifi reciever and mobile network reciever are a different thing so I would not be suprised if this iphone is indeed defective in a way with it's wifi chip.

But it happened after a software update lol and lots of people are moaning about it since said update. So I can’t see how software could break hardware considering it was fine for everyone pre 14.5

I would wait for Apple to release some sort of a patch for this issue if it is software related. Until then there's probably nothing you can do.
